arketype architects has been my architect for the last 11 new builds and has assisted in a number of remodels. David Ferrin the architect is professional and knowledgeable. He seems to enjoy doing out of the box designs but is great at any style of home or commercial building. Some of David’s strong points are green building, using new materials, great use of space in and out of the home, working with the client on design and just being a really nice hard working down to earth person with a creative mind. He works in all areas from Santa Barbara to Los Angeles.

Right now I am working on five detached condos in Port Hueneme that David designed. We are in the final stages and David has been there every step of the way. The thing I love about David is he always takes my calls when he is available and if he is not available he get back to me asap. He does not put me off like some professionals in the construction industry for days. Also he has a great office staff that in a crises helps to think through what can be done until David gets back to you. Working with David Ferrin and his team is a breath of fresh air.

While working with David we received a design build award from the City of Ojai for Excellence in Architectural Design for 3 live work detached condos.
